My set up on this bike is very similar to my Casseroll. Based around Salsa's 44cm Cowbell bar, this bike sports aero bars from Profile designs for long days in the saddle. The bar is set lower than the saddle, in contrast to being set slightly above my saddle on my offroad, Woodchipper equipped bikes. Shifting and braking controls are from Sram on this bike.
For the drive train on this bike I went with proven components from Shimano and Sram. Up front an XT crank and compact front derailleur handing shifting wonderfully. Out back a Sram X9 derailleur and cassette work wonderfully and allow for the use of a 12-36t wide range cassette if I'd like. I went with an 11-32 cassette for use around here.
Wheels are my standard choices of White Industry hubs and quality rims set up tubeless. I'm running WTB Vulpine semi slick tires at about 30-35 psi. This is an amazing combo of comfort and effortless rolling. The tires feel almost road bike like on hard surfaces, and they actually corner surprisingly well.
I've spent quite a bit of time on this bike this year. I love the comfort and stability of the larger tires, the aesthetics, and the fit is great. I have a few minor changes I'd like to make, but these really are niggling points. All in all this bike flat out rocks. I can't wait to get some serious miles in on it!
